"How to Build an American Religion"

Religion is a word to describe how people organize to worship something. In the rich history of religion in the United States, there is a wide array of instances where social movements alter how collectives of people structure their relationship to the world. This talk offers a series of recommendations, drawn from the history of religion, about how to launch such a successful movement. Religion is nolt limited to organizations that encourage the worship of gods; it includes a variety of efforts for social change, market manipulation, and entertainment.
